TiVo TCD652160 HD Digital Video Recorder: Review

TiVo TCD652160 HD Digital Video Recorder: Review by RichMas

The latest and most popular TiVo version, the TCD652160, provides all of the great TiVo satisfaction to which we have become accustomed and, by connecting to the Internet, it adds a new wealth of incredible services which allow us to do many cool things, including download movies immediately from the Internet!

When considering the purchase of a new TiVo digital video recorder, there are two classes of purchasers. The first group is those people who have never owned a digital recorder in the past and the second group is those who are considering an update for HD services and Internet connectivity. This article is for both groups.

Digital Video Recorders became a mainstay technology for many people with the advent of TiVo several years back. TiVo became so popular that it turned into a verb. Just like with Internet searches--I Googled it-- people now say, "I TiVo'd the show" or "did you TiVo it?"

Many cable and satellite providers offer digital video recorders with their contract. However, these are not TiVo and people do not get the same TiVo experience. At a small extra cost, TV provides immense programming options. Of course, the core, the foundation, that we all love is the ability to watch our favorite TV programs whenever we want.

If you are new to the TiVo world, this is the model that you should buy. However, if you already have a DVR, should you upgrade to the TiVo TCD652160? To come up with an answer to this, let's look at all of the enhanced features of this TV offering.

This new TiVo device now supports up to 20 hours of high-definition programming (for up to 150 hours, choose the TiVo TCD 658000). Today's Top LCD TVs provide a picture that is absolutely stunning. You do not want to have to scale back when you are watching recorded programs. Thus, the HD additions alone make it worth the price of admission.

But there is so much more! When you combine TiVo with network and Internet connectivity, the options available skyrocket.

TiVo now connects to your home network and the Internet enabling you to transfer your shows to portable devices (such as your MP3 player--very cool!), put shows on a DVD, transfer between two devices, play music through your computer's music library, show photos and home videos, and, perhaps most importantly, order movies on demand through the Internet.

One recent user summed up the sentiments of many by simply saying: "Awesome Product". The TiVo TCD652160 HD Digital Video Recorder is just that.

Find this TiVo and much more in the Christmas Electronics section of the Christmas Store Online.
